Book Arts: Build a Book…from the Inside Out

Notes From Overseas © Lyall Harris & Patricia Silva

In this process-based 4-session course, we will explore a range of simple folded and bound structures as we experiment with written and visual content, including letterpress printing with wood type.

Throughout, we will keep a steady eye on the relationship between content and form as each participant builds a multi-faceted folded book structure and paper enclosure.

Each book will be unique to its maker. This is not a writing course, but we will be engaging in several writing prompts and exercises.
